My boss when I appealed to him to respect my correct pronoun: he declared it "private", said that it was "unprofessional" to ask such a thing.
RT @ebel: There is a lot of problems with requiring "professional manner" in a code of conduct. "professionalism" has been used against many marginalised groups, like camp men, women who don't wear heels, and black people with dreadlocks.
Okay sometimes Reddit is Good
User has made three posts:
- "I found these pills in my son's laundry, what are they?"
- "How should I ask my child about spironolactone and estradiol?"
- "My daughter is so much happier!"
That people can't see how this is all connected frustrates me endlessly.
Abuse of women. Trans hate. Genocide. Destruction of the poor and sick.
This is all connected and if you aren't fighting it where you see it, you are contributing to it.
We need to do more.

Since it is coming up again:
Mastodon isn't private.
Expect anything you toot to be visible to everyone, regardless of your settings for visibility.
Mastodon is built on a system that isn't appropriate for private conversation and the work arounds for private toots and the like are not in any way robust against someone just ignoring them.
When I started using twitter, it was an internet place where I'd meet new people. Through events and stuff I then met around 2/3 of my followers and it became a bit more like Facebook for me.
My weird twitter account then became the primary vent for things I didn't directly want to share, but weird twitter got completely destroyed in the US election.
And now, this, feels a lot like twitter did for the first few years: something fresh and new, full of interesting exciting people. I like that.
Ich finde das so fuchtbar, wenn beim Outing von Nazis so stark auf deren beruflichen Werdegang eingegangen wird...
Sich über Nazis lustig machen, weil diese im Beruf/Studium/whatever gescheitert sind? Nicht meine Antifa...
Also ob aus einem Nazi ein besserer Mensch wird, wenn si*er erfolgreich im Job wäre...
Ebenso ist es auch für Nazis nicht verwerflich als Sexarbeiter*innen zu arbeiten (und das sollte auch nie als Angriffspunkt genutzt werden)...
aber was weiß ich schon...
Und jetzt wirds kritisch. ALLE NACHTEILE von Mastodon! Naja, vielleicht. "Mastodon: The good, the bad and the ugly" https://medium.com/@thisisTQ/mastodon-the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly-165a5f0ba20a
Here we go! "Mastodon: Oh, the possibilities!" Why multiple accounts can (and should!) be fun: https://medium.com/@thisisTQ/mastodon-oh-the-possibilities-513a94bfbca0
